About Ikaria Holdings, Inc.

Ikaria Holdings, Inc. is a fully integrated biotherapeutics company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative pharmaceuticals and drug-device combinations for hospitalized, critically ill patients. The company's lead product, INOmax(R) (nitric oxide) for inhalation, is the only FDA-approved drug for the treatment of hypoxic respiratory failure in term and near-term newborns, and also is marketed in Canada, Europe, Australia and Latin America. INOmax recently was approved for marketing in Japan. Ikaria is engaged in new and ongoing clinical development of INOmax, Covox(R) (carbon monoxide) for inhalation and hydrogen sulfide. Recently, Ikaria acquired the North American rights to terlipressin, which currently is under review by the FDA for the treatment of hepatorenal syndrome Type 1.

1. INOmax should not be used in the treatment of neonates known to be dependent on right-to-left shunting of blood. Abrupt discontinuation of INOmax may lead to a worsening condition. Methemoglobinemia is a dose-dependent side effect of inhaled nitric oxide therapy. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) forms rapidly in gas mixtures containing nitric oxide and oxygen, thus may cause airway inflammation and damage. Methemoglobin, NO2, and Fi2 should be monitored during nitric oxide administration.
